Description 

This route climbs the blunt arete around the left corner from Resurrection. Begin by trending up and right, and follow worsening crimps and pockets that just keep coming as you pass back and forth from right to left side of the arete. Save some strength for a challenging top out on grey limestone. Without a definitive crux move, expect to be pumped. If you climb 5.12 and you are in South West Utah (or the United States for that matter) this route is not to miss.

Don't under estimate this one from first glance. A long sustained finish will keep you on the edge.

Solid 12a, it was frigid when I did it though, perhaps it wouldn't feel so bad if I didn't have a death hold on the crimps with my frozen hands.
